Hey PG--we go way back so I know you'll not take this the wrong way, and in fact, I see much merit in what you put down, but I did want to respond as to whether or not "nonDEAD" posts are good or bad, right or wrong, etc., etc. Only in that context is the following commentary relevant.

When CLIFF asks "how's fishing?" and Elbow or JGlynn respond with "not bad" or JOTS says "the PATS suck!" and William Tell says "right!", that is something altogether different from a nondead post that is an advertisement, an endorsement or what have you (something recognizably different from a "hello" between two friends).

Just thought that should be made clear.

Why, I am not sure...

By the way, Tell,

Hi, how've you been? :)

Like I said, I like the way this forum has evolved and I always like hearing other views, especially from folks like you and Johhny who have been here since I can remember. It's also good to get new blood and views here as well. So once again, Greetings to all my old friends and new ones here....Long Live Grateful Dead Music.

I have passed my love for the band to my 19y/o son and he plays guitar, keyboards, fiddle and mandolin, so if he ever ends up being involved in a Dead cover band, I hope you folks will indulge a father's pride if I brag a little about it..... :)-

It has been a chaotic couple of years, my friend. But, I will always remember you as one of the originals hereabouts, and like McGlone, a Kind Soul. That counts for something, I am sure.

And, I know that we often engage in nonDEAD exchanges, and just wanted to defend them as such, though they probably irritate, bore and otherwise disturb many others, especially those not "in" the group, whatever that is...

If the Maykers Defender was just saying "Hello!" to Noise Collector or some such, he/she no doubt would have caught no flack for a nonDEAD post...

No biggie. Good to see you around here, brother. Good to see you.
